Six Characters

Six Characters in Search of an Author

By Luigi Pirandello
Directed by Rebecca Waxman with Sandy Klein
Sponsored by Integrated Solar and Twombly Wealth Management


The story begins on a bare stage where a troupe of actors is in mid-rehearsal.  Six individuals break into the theatre and demand an author who will cast them in a play—and literally save their lives. Pirandello's brilliant exploration of the nature of reality versus illusion, truth versus artifice, and the workings of the creative process has been given a wonderfully fresh update in Robert Brustein’s contemporary script.
 “Six Characters in Search of an Author is the most original and dynamic play ever written in any nation, or at any time, whether ancient or modern.” – George Bernard Shaw
